I travel light, with a Pelican 1200.

Holds what I need. I don't mind the pluck foam, but someday I may go to the solid. There are a couple sources that have the exact size to fit the case, both pluck and solid. I have changed it several times.

I am using a Celestron case for my Nagler Plossls. I designed the foam on mycasebuilder.com (love that place).

Nice panoply.

mine is modest, but was under ten dollars at Harbor Freight if I remember correctly.  Mine sits on the ground under my mount so it is necessary for it to be water tight on the bottom. Only mod I did to it was to cut some of the dividers with a dremel to fit some 2" parts.  I have had it for a couple years and doesn't look like it has worn in a bit.
